It made the rounds on twitter a few months back (I believe it was @jessnevins, but I think I got it via retweet by @warrenellis). The term was "Geisterpunk", a purported 1925 German pulp story title. Translated literally, it means "Ghost Punk". Since then, my mind's raced with the possibilities!

I've always had a soft spot for Steampunk as a sub-genre. I can't saw where that comes from, but it's probably been brought more to the forefront recently with games like Bioshock, or the (amazing) novel Boneshaker by Cherie Priest.

At any rate, this idea's been kicking around in my head for a few weeks now, and I thought the site could use a little color after all the black and white ink drawings. I believe this concept (if not perhaps this design -- still not 100% on it) solves a story idea I've held near and dear, but had gaping plot holes. Strange how these things work out. At any rate, enjoy!
